Music From The Borderlands

Two blog posts in one day?  Double-yew-tee-eff?

I’ve been meaning to write this for a while and figured I’d do it now seeing as I’ve written a post earlier.

Now, Borderlands.  Fantastic game series (although, I must admit, I got bored in Borderlands 2…well, not so much bored but sometimes I feel overwhelmed in open-world games and get anxious) and one major thing I love about them is the sound quality.  From the fantastic voice acting to the sound effects and ambience but what I REALLY love is the m from the opening sequences/adverts.

Borderlands turned me onto Cage The Elephant with “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked”.

Then there’s Borderlands 2 which came in with “Short Change Hero” by The Heavy.

Sadly, I haven’t played any of the other games in the series with the exception of the TellTale Games.  At the time of writing this, I have recently completed episode 2.

Tales From The Borderlands Episode 1 features “Busy Earning” by Jungle.

And, episode features Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra with “Kiss The Sky” which has now become my favourite tune at the moment!

Aside from the kick-ass tuneage the sequences themselves are awesome.  I love how ‘ballsy’ they are.  Generally, the pop culture references and parodies within the Borderlands universe sings to me and hopefully, I shall be getting engorssed in the Handsome Collection some time very soon!

You may also notice that my Nerdgazzum cover photo that I had commissioned Sick Droid Artwork to put together for me a little while back takes its inspiration from the Borderlands cover.
